Mike Tyson is reportedly forced to pay over £30,250 to a Polish organiser of a boxing gala after the American failed to turn up to the event last year.

Former American boxer Mike Tyson has reportedly been ordered to pay over £30,250 to the organiser of a boxing gala after failing to turn up to the event last year.

The Polish organiser Tomasz Babilonski sued the former heavyweight champion because the ex-fighter's managers are thought to have refused to pay any original compensation.

A court in Poland is believed to have made the ruling after Tyson decided not to appeal, according to the Huffington Post.

The gala was held in March last year.
